1990 Auguste Clape Cornas

SKU #966209 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Clape's 1990 Cornas is outstanding. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up rich, ripe aromas of black fruits, licorice, and spices. Superconcentrated, with a full-bodied, highly extracted, mouth-filling taste, this example of Cornas possesses moderate tannin, adequate acidity, and a smashingly long finish. It is also relatively refined for a Cornas, displaying no signs of the rustic tannin or funky, earthy smells many Cornas can possess. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/1997)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bacon fat - smoky nose. Quite light but beautifully balanced. Ethereal. Wonderfully clean. Proves that Cornas can be worth waiting for. (JR) 18/20 points Inner quote mark (8/2009)

K&L Notes

91 points from Jeannie Cho Lee, M.W.: "A savory, meaty Cornas that is gentle and restrained. The flavors have evolved to tertiary notes of leather, tobacco and dried mushrooms and the tannins are supple. A quiet wine that pairs well with game and roasted vegetables." (07/2015)
